Colwood wants your selfies

The only rule for fun contest? No duck faces allowed

City of Colwood chief administrative officer James Moller poses for a ‘selfie’ outside of Royal Roads University’s Hatley Castle.

The City of Colwood is challenging people to submit their best “selfie” photographs incorporating a local landmark, for the chance to win a grand prize of an iPad.

Whether it’s Royal Roads’ Hatley Castle, Fisgard Lighthouse at Fort Rodd Hill, Esquimalt Lagoon or another picturesque Colwood spot, residents and visitors alike are being asked to take photos of themselves out and about in the city.

The featured spot can be anything from a favourite coffee shop to a beautiful backyard garden to a beloved hiking spot. The photos will be used to help the city better understand what people value about the community, as it plans for the future.

The photos will be posted on the city’s I Love Colwood photo contest page. Visitors to the site can vote on their favourites and help determine weekly winners, who will then be entered for the grand prize.

Photos can be submitted either by visiting colwood.ca and following the links or by posting photos to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram with the #ilovecolwood hashtag.
